    Returning from away? Want to get a character out of the archive? This is the place for you.

    If you are inactive: By posting in this thread, you'll be made active again. If you do not want to recover any characters, just post 'I would like to be made active', and you're done!

    To restore a character: Fill out the following:

    Link to Character: Put a link to your characters app here

    Do you need changes for basic info? This is the stuff at the top of the app. Their job, grade, etc. If you're changing your characters job, or moving them up a grade, that's a yes.

    Is your character missing the resource field? All characters should have a resource field. This field details the kind of financial resources your character has access to, in very general terms. Are they living off the school's charity? Do they own their own house? Etc. If your character doesn't have one of these, you'll want to add one in restoration.

    Is your character missing the common magical items field? CMI is a new field, intended to help keep track of things like nullification bracelets, language charms, etc. All characters should have this field, even if it's just 'none'. You can find a simple list of these items here and include them in the new common magical items profile field.

    Do you need changes for character images? If your character has an image without credit, then you'll need to say yes to this. All character images need to be credited, as outlined in our site guidelines. For more info, see the 'character images' spoiler below.

    Do you want to update your characters powers? Before mid-2018, abilities were split into powers and species abilities. Characters using this system are grandfathered in, and can be restored without changes. However, powers cannot be upgraded without converting. If you want to convert your powers over, see the 'power updates' spoiler below. You do not have to convert, but if you plan to upgrade your characters powers, you should convert during restoration. If your character is on the current system, you can simply mark that.

    Code:
    [b]Link to Character:[/b] Put a link to your characters app here
    [b]Do you need changes for basic info?[/b] Yes / No
    [b]Is your character missing the resource field?[/b] Yes / No
    [b]Is your character missing the common magical items field?[/b] Yes / No
    [b]Do you need changes for character images?[/b] Yes / No
    [b]Do you want to update your characters powers?[/b] Yes / No / Not Applicable
    If you answered yes to any question on the form, your application will be moved to character applications so that you can edit it, and a mod will contact you. If you answered no to all questions, your application will be moved directly to the proper forum, with no edits needed.

    Starlight Academy does not have a face-claim system. We do not track which characters use which faces. We allow the use of art, fanart, concept art, or real life people, with the following conditions:
    - Commissioned / Personal Art: Art should be credited. If the artist is yourself, note that.
    - All Other Art: Art must be credited. You should mention the character name, the artist name, and include a link back to the artist's page. If you cannot identify the artist, the art cannot be used. If the artist requests you not repost their work, the art cannot be used. Official art can be used, but should still link back to the source where possible.
    -Unofficial art (fanart, etc) should not be edited without the artist's permission. Please note when official art has been edited, and by who.
    - Editing an image solely to remove the signature is not allowed. When cropping art, please try and leave the signature in where possible.
    - Commissioned art and adoptables created for or owned by someone other than yourself should not be used without permission from the owner.
    - Real Life: Playbys should be one of the following: Professional Model (with a modelling agency page, patreon, etc), Stock Photo (released for free public use), or Media Star (with either a Wikipedia page, or having starred in a TV show/movie). Please reference the subject and link back to their their IMDB page, patreon, agency page, or to the original source of the image.

    New Power Divisions: Powers and Species Abilities have been rolled into a single category: Abilities! Regardless of the source of your abilities, they're divided into active abilities, passive abilities, and weaknesses. Active abilities are abilities like elemental manipulation, shapeshifting, etc - abilities your character chooses to use (even if they don't have control yet). Passive abilities are abilities like enhanced senses, normal auras, etc - abilities your character uses naturally, without making a choice to do so. Weaknesses are a drawback your character faces as a result of their abilities, something that makes them worse than a human. Things like a vampire not being able to go out in the sun, or a telepath who can't stand a crowd without breaking down.

    New Limits: Characters are now allowed to have three active abilities and five passive abilities. For a character to have more abilities, they must have weaknesses directly comparable in scale to the additional abilities, but this must be added in using the ability upgrades process after completing the restoration process or something like that Converted characters do not get to add new abilities during conversion.

    Common Magical Items: We've set things up so that gaining, managing, and keeping track of simple magical items like nullification bracelets, language charms, human shape charms, etc. is a lot easier. You can find a simple list of these items here and include them in the new common magical items profile field.

    Converting is just a matter of shuffling around your existing powers and species abilities into the new categories. Powers shouldn't be changed in this process, just reorganized. You do not get new powers for converting.

    You're going to need to fill out the form for each character to get them restored.
